I discipline a staff member at bryn mawr care, July 19, 2009, 1 a.m.

I was watching a movie on tv at 1 am. A staff came in and said it was too late for me to be watching tv. I had words with her to which she said nothing and left the room. A few minutes later she came back with two other staff including william dorsey with whom I had an exchange and I turned down the tv, William was satisfied, The three staff left discussing the affair, and I overheard their discussion.

Afterwards I made a few notes, as follows:

2009 07 20 0(a.m.) Be prepared to be summoned to Patrick's (the administrator's) office.

"She dealt with me bluntly so I dealt with her bluntly."

Her complaint: ~"Now I am afraid of him", ~"Do you know how close to my face you were?", ~"I don't want to be in that room with him."

My point was that I deserved respect just because I live here.

Now there are two possible reasons for staff to be afraid of a resident:

0. social deviance

1. justice

0. There are no posted rules setting hours when the tv can be watched.

On the record:

-- I called her a young lady.

-- I didn't use any profanity.

-- The last thing I said to her was "Do we understand each other?"

Off the record:

-- I am senior to her.

This is a pretty good brick.
